“Bags and little Whistles” 2006 Nude Whistle & Pipe Calendar is here and causing a quite a stir! Hot on the heels of “Pulling Out All the Stops” 2004 Nude Accordion Calendar and last year’s “No Strings Attached”, this year’s calendar carries on the silliness and attempt to answer the question: What do pipe players wear under their kilts?
Twelve of Newfoundland & Labrador’s best whistle and pipe players, including Gordon Cormier, Daniel Payne, Jim Fidler and Gerry Strong reveal something of themselves in this spicy calendar. Award winning photographer, Sheilagh O’Leary captures intimate and amusing portraits of these daring musicians, as they face the wilds of downtown St. John’s, the freezing Atlantic or their own bathtub all in the name of a good cause.
The calendar is available at O'Brien's Music, Fred's Records, Living Planet, the Downhomer and at the St. John’s Folk Arts Council office. A fundraiser for the St. John's Folk Arts Council, the cost is $20.
The St. John’s Folk Arts Council is a non-profit organization that has been active in the cultural life of Newfoundland and Labrador since 1966. They host and organize events all year long, including the Annual Newfoundland & Labrador Folk Festival at Bannerman Park in August, the Annual St. John’s Storytelling Festival in November, a weekly folk night and other concerts and special events, all with the goal of celebrating Newfoundland & Labrador’s unique cultural heritage. The mandate of the SJFAC is to "promote the Folk Arts in Newfoundland and Labrador and throughout Canada; foster creative expression of those arts; and to further the cause of good intergroup relationships".
